Welcome! I'm an Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship (with tenure), the Institute for Entrepreneurship & Competitive Enterprise Faculty Fellow, and Chair of the PhD Program at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. Over the years, I have studied and worked in Shanghai, London, Toronto, Chicago, Helsinki, and Edmonton before joining IU. I got three degrees respectively from the London School of Economics, University of Toronto, and University of Alberta. In the interim, I also worked as a business consultant.
